This was a treat to see such exceptional art that normally is not shown to the public because it is a private collection. The exhibit was of a very high caliber with works of art from Renoir, Van Gogh, Picasso to name a few. What a beautiful and priceless collection. We appreciate that the family made this available for showing to the public. Something you seldom see.
The Singer museum is a small local museum in the heart of Lauren and offers limited car parking. For this exhibit the parking was overflowing and it was difficult to find parking anywhere in the village.

It was a real pleasure to see the newly reopened Singer Museum in it’s enhanced version. The choice of Impressionism and Beyond as the main draw appeared cryptic, but judging by the multitudes thronging the galleries and restaurant area, people appeared more tha happy to see the results of the renovation project.

I travelled to Holland (from Hungary) in the first place to see the Impressionists and Beyond exhibition in the Singer Museum in Laren. It was well worth the trip, the exhibition was rich in masterpieces, well laid out (albeit somewhat unorthodox in the timeline). Among other treasures, Signac’s “Tuna fishermen ready to leave Concarneu” and Henri-Edmond Cross’s “The lake in the Bois du Boulogne” were for me the highlights of the exhibition. It’s on until the 6th of May, 2018 - hurry there!

Singer is not only a museum but also a theatre and it has recently been renovated. It is now an absolutely stunning building that would not be out of place in Amsterdam’s museum quarter but you would not expect something of this magnitude in the quaint little town of Laren. Absolutely worth a visit. Especially now the newly discovered Van Gogh pen drawings are on display at Singer.

I did not know of the existence of this beautiful jewel box of a museum. It was the collection of the owner of the American Singer sewing machine company. They loved Laren and the late 19th/early 20th century "second" Dutch school of painters so much that they moved there from America & were patrons of the arts.

The building itself is quite beautiful and so is the collection. Private rooms, wood paneled with glowing fires, where you can have a drink and relax. Nice gift shop and cafe. Self-service cloakroom with free lockers. Signs in Dutch and in English.
